August 2016 Featured Artist's Reception & Art Walk


We had such a good week of sales.  The evening was overcast and cool making it a perfect night on the waterfront.  And we had a good crowd of people coming through the Gallery and enjoying our food and meeting and talking with our artists.  Lots of shops were open in support of Art Walk Friday and great music going on with Mike Swanberg in our gallery and also on the patio by the cafe below.  We had lots of new faces show up to see Beth’s amazing photography and Susan’s wonderful paintings.  It was such fun meeting again Walter, Janet, Eileen, and Kitty--our newest members and introducing them to the rest of us!  Such a fun evening and very successful in sales for Beth and Susan!! 

Featured Artist Beth Sargent

Guest Artist Susan Manbeian


We had such an array of wonderful goodies to nibble on throughout the evening.  Beth and Susan brought some awesome finger foods and our customers and artists loved every bite.   …and meat and cheese Swirls trays, the chocolate candies, the linguica and tons of fantastic cookies and other goodies.  We had so many wonderful choices…and we received so many compliments from so many visitors to the gallery.  Thank you both for putting on such an amazing spread!! 



Special thank you’s to all the sweet souls who came to help us set up and take down, and worked at making sales through out the evening—Karen Peterson and Jeremy Baker who worked the day and helped get the reception set up and carry up all the car loads of goodies!  Special thanks to Greg for manning the Sales Desk, Gregory and his amazing Punch, and Karen who manned the Food Table tonight with Beth.  Special thanks to Angeline, Don, Karen, George, and Janet, Alice, Walter & Daphne, Carlo and Betsy, Susan and Beth, Ingrid & Jan & her parents, Jari, Jack, Jo & Neal, and so many other helping hands that helped make the reception a success!  Thank you one and all for supporting our Opening Reception for Beth and Susan.  It was such a great evening.  And we had such great music thanks to Mike!!
